Muppet stuff: Fraggle music and vintage Henson

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 25th 2007 6:01PM

fraggle rockSheesh, I guess I haven't checked out Muppet News Flash in awhile, and wound up missing out on some cool Muppet news.

First, a Fraggle Rock album will hit stores in October. There's pretty much zero information on Fraggle Rockin', except that it will contain music from the series. Amazon doesn't even have an album image. Did I mention it's a three-disc set? That's all kinds of awesome.

Fraggle Rock feature film is on the way, says Henson Company

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 20th 2006 8:02PM
Fraggle RockEvery child of the '80s that had HBO shares an idelible memory from that time period... Shannon Tweed's breasts from Hot Dog: The Movie. Somewhat less indelible, but pretty memorable in its own right, was the Jim Henson series Fraggle Rock. Now comes word from the folks at the Henson Company that a full-length feature film version is in the works, written and executive produced by none other than Ahmet Zappa.

In the movie, Gobo, Wembley, Mokey, Boober and Red finally leave the underground world of Fraggle Rock and go into what the Hensons call "outer space", otherwise known as the outside world. In fact, they'll actually interact with (gulp) human beings (what are the odds that one of them is going to be Kelly Ripa?). Zappa is involved to not only help write the screenplay, but the music for the movie, as well. No word on a title or release date just yet.

More info on Fraggle Rock season two set

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 6th 2006 7:55AM
fraggle rockBack in May I relayed information from Muppet News Flash about the upcoming second season of Fraggle Rock on DVD. Well, now we have a little more information on the set, which is set to be released on September 5. It looks like the set will include cast and crew interviews, though I'm not sure if those will be the same ones mentioned by Muppeteer Steve Whitmire or not (see other post). The four-disc set will include all twenty-four episodes from season two, and, perhaps best of all, a tribute to the late Jerry Juhl, a writer who has worked with the Muppets since the very beginning on shows such as Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, the Muppet movies, and Fraggle Rock, of course.

Don't expect a Fraggle Rock movie right away

by Adam Finley, posted May 10th 2006 3:03PM
fraggle rockMuppet Newsflash, always a great source for Muppet news, is reporting that, yes, there will probably be a movie based on Jim Henson's HBO series Fraggle Rock, and, yes, Brian Henson will probably be directing it. However, don't expect to see it until 2007 or 2008, and even that's a little iffy. While he admits they're planning on making the movie, Henson also acknowledges he may have jumped the gun in announcing it, since the studio has other projects they're already immersed in, such as the sequel to The Dark Crystal, titled The Power of the Dark Crystal. Henson has also said that the Fraggle Rock movie will not be a continuation of the show, but will still focus on the "unchanged" relationships between the characters. In that respect, it doesn't sound like it would be all the different from the Muppet movies.

Info on new Fraggle Rock DVD

by Adam Finley, posted May 8th 2006 2:08PM
fraggle rockDance your cares away, people. The always sexy and always informative Muppet News Flash has a few rumors about what we might expect in the September 5 release of the second season of Fraggle Rock. The key word in that last sentence is "rumor," as no official announcement has been made about any of this stuff. Nevertheless, Muppeteer Steve Whitmire (who took over as the voice of Kermit after Jim Henson's death and has worked on pretty much all Muppet ventures, including Sesame Street) recently spoke to fans in London where, according to Web scuttlebutt, he said the new DVD set may feature interviews with himself and others, and may also include special home movies he shot while working on the set of Fraggle Rock.
